Our next CWLR #1865 stated will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2019. (Please note the date difference from the normal 1st. Saturday in October.) The gavel will fall at 10:00am at Day Lodge #58, AF&AM, 100 E. Main St., Louisa, Virginia. After our normal business meeting we will move to the dining room where Worshipful Gregory Hasaflook will give a presentation on Civil War era carbines. That will be followed by lunch and then we will tour the Trevilian Station Battlefields. This will be conducted by Worshipful Ed Crebbs. Both of these brothers are CWLR members and also of the hosting Day Lodge Both are experts in Civil War history, particularly that which happened in the local area.
The Lodge shares a building with the Louisa United Methodist Church. This is a wonderful history that started when the building was original constructed in the mid 1800’s. It is a beautiful building in its meeting/dining hall, its church sanctuary, and its Masonic Lodge room. The photo is of the Lodge Room looking East.
Parking is available behind the building. Access is also available from the rear parking lot to the dining room and to the stairs to the Lodge room. PLEASE be aware that there are no elevators or chair lifts. Access to the 2nd floor is only by 4 flights of 7 stairs each with 3 landings.
Donuts and coffee will be available at 9:00am in the dining hall.
The Battle of Trevilian Station was fought for control of the Virginia Central Railroad and happened over two days in June 1864.
Friday and Saturday dinner locations are to be determined.
